Blackbutt Timber

(Eucalyptus pilularis)


Blackbutt grows in the coastal forests of NSW from Bega on the south coast to Maryborough in Queensland. It is also referred to as coastal Blackbutt to separate the species from New England Blackbutt (Eucalyptus andrewsii, E. campanulata).
The heartwood for Blackbutt is pale brown to a light pinkish colour.
Blackbutt is one of the main species of timber logged in NSW from both Forest NSW and private property resources (PP).

Common Uses
Blackbutt timber is commonly used by electricity authorities for power poles, piling for both marine and foundation, jetty and wharf construction, rail sleepers, cross arms, decking, landscaping timbers and all sawn timber applications.

Blackbutt has a durability rating of class 1 above ground (AG) and class 2 in ground (IG).
Blackbutt is not susceptible to Lyctid borer and is also resistant to termites.
Treatment in CCA or ACQ preservative will increase the durability of the sapwood.
